Google introduces fact-checking to image search

(CNN) — Google is working to fight fake content.

The tech platform announced Monday that it will now highlight information from fact-checkers in image search results.

Users who conduct searches on Google Images will now see labels beneath pictures that have been flagged by third-party fact-checking organizations.

It’s an expansion of a feature that is already on Google news and Google search.

Google is using a database it helped develop with Microsoft’s Bing and the Duke Reporters’ Lab, a journalism research outfit at Duke University.

The database, known as claim-review, is also heavily used by fact-checkers who have partnered with Facebook.
